HAVE THE GREENS LOST THE PLOT OR DON'T THEY WANT VOTES ANY MORE?
It is difficult to know where to start at a time when a state election is almost upon us and the two major parties - or if you look at it from a left/right perspective, and we then have one party with a right wing and an ultra-right wing - and you know you can't vote for what they represent and you wonder who you will be able to vote for, and you thought maybe the Greens provided an alternative which would be viable and then the following:
Philip Nitschke slams 'shut-out by Senate' in

Party were asked to speak at a hearing for the inquiry in Melbourne on
Wednesday, despite representing the "largest and only national
pro-euthanasia organisation in Australia".
founder of Exit International blamed Greens senator Richard Di Natale, who has
proposed the Dying with Dignity Bill, for the exclusion, and was angry that
groups who had made "uncharitable and incorrect statements" about him
in their submissions were invited to speak.
comes after the Medical Board of Australia suspended his licence to practice

Dignity Victoria and beyondblue.
So the Greens are a failure on the Euthanasia issue - and what else have they collapsed on? Think of Palestine/Israel and think of Lee Rhiannon and her pro-Palestinian support while she was a New South Wales state parliamentarian. Then she became a senator for the Greens in the Commonwealth parliament and joined the right-wing of the Greens in no longer supporting the Palestinians.
Where does it leave you as someone looking for a group or party to vote for?
Well as one of those voters it leaves me feeling it is all a waste of time and effort and as someone with a sense of humour is quoted as saying - don't vote - it only encourages them!
